Full-block LEED development in Philadelphia’s Graduate Hospital neighborhood
How often do you get a whole city block to play with? That was the opportunity on Bancroft Street where previously demolished row homes left a majority of the street vacant. Working closely with the developer/builder, Re:Vision master planned two phases of construction to create 11 new-construction LEED Gold Certified row homes. With lots less than 16’ wide, the units are a study in verticality and include appealing living spaces from below-grade to the rooftop. The design took a creative approach to daylighting and incorporated light wells and clerestories to successfully bring light deep into the units. One of our favorite features is the street-level storage unit for bicycles, strollers, trash or any other movable object that vexes most city homeowners.
